3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rugby House - batch #2:
I missed the first batch of this and was glad to catch this very limited 2nd batch (one 5 gallon barrel released). More time in the barrel appears to have done this some good. Dull brown brew with very little head. Nose of oak, caramel, brown sugar, earthy hops, whiskey. Taste is slightly nutty, more caramel, good amount of booze.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jack Macís at the release party. Dark brown to black with an off-white head. Aroma is whiskey and brown sugar - very sweet. Flavor is similar. I get some whiskey and chocolate notes up front, as well as some roasted malt and brown sugar. As the beer warms the strong woody notes begin to come through, making the beer quite tannic. Very sweet overall. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
